If he can play mistake free defense like he did the last three games he won't have any problems finding an NHL team to take him.
Hes going to struggle to make himself more valuable than all but the suckiest teams bottom pair defenders. Chances are he's not even beating out
Staos, Reese, or jurcina for the isles bottom pair right now. His best chance is probably Minnesota in the offseason.
